The Bar Art Series, Part 9: "No Pressure"

"No Pressure"

June 24, 2008

When you're studying for the Bar, some days are better and some days are worse. Sometimes the day starts out better, and ends up worse. This picture started out as a simple cartoony drawing of a bunny rabbit. I was thinking about playing it conservative and giving him a carrot to eat. Then I thought about being a bit more subversive and having him smoke a cigarette. But as the day's lecture droned on, and my energy and willingness to stay upbeat waned, the bunny slowly, inevitably found his way to the chopping block. But I don't think of this as a wholly negative drawing. It's an incentive. I'll save you, bunny! I vow it!
